January 6, 2021: Never forget

The LexRock Democrats will mark the one-year anniversary of the bloody assault on the United States Capitol by a brutal pro-Trump mob– incited by the then-president himself– that threatened the foundations of our democracy.

While many Republicans are eager to forget or downplay the awful events of that day, Democrats believe Americans MUST remember.

Our Headquarters at 11 South Jefferson Street in Lexington will be open on Thursday January 6 from noon to 5 p.m. for displays and information about the insurrection— including the shameful record of our Republican Congressman Ben Cline.

As we look to the 2022 elections, there will be an opportunity for people who are not registered to vote at their current address to register.

We will also use the occasion to collect disposable diapers for Project Horizon.

Cider, donuts and cookies will be available.

Please wear a mask!
